xG's "special" vehicle featured from their Fort Brag
Also note that this transaction is termed a "12-month sales order", not just a "sale". No money received as yet and is dependent on delivery of equipment in Q2 2012. Still leaves plenty of wriggle room. We've heard stuff like this before: sales orders (PC3 and Liketone), letters of intent, trial agreements, etc. No money ever changed hands.
Also note that, just like Force 3, liketone and the rest CSATNET conspicuously fail to mention their relationship with xG as a "Partner" on their partner pages. Oversight? Maybe, but it hardly seems like they are pinning their hopes to the xMax bandwaggon.
Maybe this is because their system isn't even ready yet, after for years saying it was! Today's announcement is a doosie:
John Coleman, CEO, xG Technology. [said]"Our next challenge will be to make a system of affordable devices for volume production. Given the milestone we have achieved, I have every confidence that our team at xG will make this happen." ... Scott Garlington, Vice President of Engineering at xG Technology. [said it was] "the aim of making the xMax system commercially available later this year."
Ohh, Scotttt, ohh Johhhn! xG said this years ago! You ordered 10,000 phones years ago...! Before you switched xMax to newMax. Now it's back to the drawing board - again..! NewNewMax. Mooohahaha!.
